When you’ve had your fill of the past in Old Montréal, fast forward a few centuries at the city’s Science Centre—one of the best things to do in Montréal on a rainy day with the kids. Perched on the edge of the Old Port, the science center packs in crowds of school kids on weekdays and families on weekends, many of them to watch IMAX screenings. Exhibitions range from temporary attractions like the no-holds-barred interactive “Sex: A Tell-all Exhibition” exhibition that runs until March 6, 2011, for those over 12, to basic science exhibits and play areas for the wee ones. The bulk of the exhibits are geared toward youth, but even the grown-ups will pick up a few tips.
